Traffic Construction Alert – EXIT 95 KANAWHA CITY INTERCHANGE (WEATHER PERMITTING) – On Monday, June 26, 2017, from 7 PM to 7 AM, the Kanawha City southbound exit ramp will be closed to traffic. Overhead and portable message boards will be placed on the interstate and on secondary roads to alert motorists of the ramp closure and to provide them with detour options. Those traveling southbound on I-77 through Charleston will be given the following direction: EXIT 95 TO WV61 USE EXIT 98 This will detour southbound traffic on I-77 to the 35th Street Bridge to access Kanawha City. If they miss the 35th Street Bridge, the next detour sign will instruct them to use Exit 89 to WV61 (which is the Marmet Exit). The Southbound entrance ramp at Exit 95 Kanawha City will be open so traffic can re-enter I-77 going south or going north.

Exciting news for Kanawha City. The 42nd Street Improvement Project has been approved. See announcement from KCCA Board President, Rick Burka:

I wanted to post some great news. Tonight the Finance Committee and City Council voted and passed for approval the entire 42nd street project, $198,043.35. Bids are approved, and we are ready to talk and get buy in with surrounding property and business owners. We will be breaking ground soon, and hope the weather cooperates until it is completed.
